The Other Side of Midnight

So it goes around The wheel is spins forever Long enough to find The treasures you had sown So we chip away the stone "For how long?" you said At least until the end of time All along the line And lo, you came and you stayed Long enough to gain control But now the reins have broken What did you expect? So we chip away the stone "For how long?" you said At least until the end of time All along the line

Long ago In a world as black as coal When time dripped down like honey Thick and good Kingdoms of pain In a land where chaos reigned All forms of life shot down Right where they stood You and I We could never speak the truth Suffocated underneath The caul of youth As bad for me As I was bad for you But I surely never meant to do you harm Lay down your arms And now awake To the sound that morning makes Praying all new grafts to take And mend the seams Without a name Hesiation, fear or shame Penetrate the depths To raise the sunken dream You and I We could never speak the truth Suffocated underneath The caul of youth So naive And so easily seduced By your block long smile Your superficial charms You and I We could never speak the truth Suffocated underneath The caul of youth Constantly In search of concrete proof Tired of grazing through your Cemetary farms Lay down your arms

Sunset Night 04:11
Come down Down to where I live I know You've got a lot to give Some will come down And be bound to break And some will come down And be bound to take And some will come down And be bound to wake And some will be Sunset Night I know you're for real Sunset Night Won't you tell me how you feel Let go And let your bright lights dim Be low And watch the midnight swim Sunset Night I know you're for real Sunset Night Won't you tell me how you feel

Dream me Away from it all Dream me To nowhere at all Take me Away from this place Beam me To black outer space Waiting for someone No one can see Waiting for you And for me Waiting for something Or nothing at all Waiting for kingdoms To fall Free me From all of this pain Help me To live again Feed me Light from your eyes Make me someone I recognize Waiting for someone No one can see Waiting for you And for me Waiting for something Or nothing at all Waiting for kingdoms To fall Waiting for someone No one you know Waiting As life comes and goes Waiting for something Or nothing at all Waiting for kingdoms To fall

Hey hey The winds have blown through The long night Telling tales That everyone should know Three steps forward Two steps back Neither defend Nor to attack The feeling for everyone should be easy If you're open to receive The Motherlode And let yourself believe in what you know Neither for us to teach nor to chastise We came here to neutralize We came to reveal and free our souls Hey hey The rains have washed out the Long divide Telling tales for every single eye Waves of fear The fog of doubt Those that talk out of both sides Of their mouths The aimless ways for everyone to be Are you open to receive The Motherlode? And let yourself believe in What you know Neither for us to teach Nor to chastise We came here to neutralize We came here to reveal and free our souls We came here to believe in love So let yourself believe in love

Do you recall a time Long before we ever met Wide awake, wild eyed and dreaming Every act performed without a net And any truth we needed we constructed Did you forget? Lost for years inside your eyes Tossed among your ruins and your debts Now I stand beneath your window Armed with just a pair of castanets Hoping you will rise in time to join me In forever's end Wide awake, wild eyed and dreaming Every act performed without a net I'm hoping you will rise in time to join me In forever's end
7.
You came And you stayed alone Long enough to find me To remind me Visions you were shown And then erased The bright white night Was blinding It was blinding We could last here long As they infiltrate the others You did as you were told You were brave De-magnetized from north to south I feel through your face And see through your eyes As I memorize your mouth Memorize your mouth We could last here long As they infiltrate the others To find your natural home We could last here long As they infiltrate the others

Going Home 08:07
Cut and run The old ways failed A new world has begun Time for you to regain The clarity that you lack What will still remain Once you get your senses back? And I heard someone say.... Tell me what you think Tell me everything you feel Tell me what you see What is true, what is unreal Going home On a solo flight But you are not alone Wondering if there will be Something there for us Someone who will care Or say a prayer for us Well I heard someone say... Tell me what you want Tell me everything you need Show me where it hurts What is broken, where it bleeds Cause everyone is riding On an ocean of tears In a lifeboat bulit From the worst of all our fears I've been dreaming And now I know why I'm just searching for the other half Of the sky Tell me what you think Tell me everything you feel Tell me what you see What is true, what is unreal NOW
